- Description:A project/sunset review summarizes the challenges, solutions, and lessons of a recently completed project. This review pertains to a project that standardized pressure ulcer data elements and electronic documentation used by long term care clinical staff for storage and reporting within an electronic health record system.
Long-Term Care Facility
This project will evaluate the comparative effectiveness of asynchronous telepsychiatry versus synchronous telepsychiatry in a skilled nursing facility population using a 12-month randomized controlled trial.
This project engaged individuals with physical, sensory, and cognitive disabilities to expand upon existing consumer mobile health application design guidance for social networks.
This project will examine the health information needs of older adults to inform the design of systems to support their health and independence.
Implemented a Patient-Centered Medication Information System (PCMIS) to provide secure access to accurate, complete, and current medication information for patients, clinicians, pharmacists, and nurses, reconciled differences in medication information, and provided a platform for evidence-based decision support; assessed the benefits and costs of the system.
Implemented a health IT system with added best-practices decision support modules in 7 nursing homes and evaluated the impact on care processes, resident health outcomes, and staff efficiency and satisfaction.
Demonstrated and evaluated the clinical effectiveness and cost-savings of utilizing telehealth technology to reduce the days to healing for chronic wounds by improving access to caregivers, point of care processes, and dissemination of best practice information.
This project investigated the feasibility and impact of novel approaches to clinician decision support in multidisciplinary ambulatory care, emphasizing high-risk transitions of care.
Lessons from the On-Time Pressure Ulcer program informed the development of an On-Time Fall Prevention module, which uses documentation data elements, actionable reports, and tracking tools to address residents’ fall risk factors.
This project enhanced an existing health-information exchange (HIE) to enable clinicians to work more effectively and efficiently and to utilize the HIE more fully when managing care transitions.
